What the Critics Say

"A witty exciting page-turner which becomes increasingly addictive.... Quite unlike anything else around - and all the better for that." (Daily Mail)

Unique & different. Loved it!

The book was recommended by a friend. I read/listen to book a month and this was so unique and something different, narrated by a number of different characters in the story. I like the 2 narrators who brought the story to life. Thoroughly recommend this!
